Mr Tevita Aho

Consultant Urologist


I moved from New Zealand to the UK to be the Clinical Fellow in Uro-oncology at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CUH) in 2003. The following year I was appointed as a Consultant Urological Surgeon. During my training in New Zealand I spent a year learning Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate (HoLEP) from the urologists who invented it. In 2004, I introduced HoLEP at Cambridge University Hospital where it rapidly became, and remains, the treatment of choice for the majority  of men seeking a surgical treatment for urinary symptoms or retention. Cambridge University Hospital was one of the first centres in the UK to offer HoLEP. I have been involved in HoLEP research from its earliest days, and have published and presented widely on the subject.

I am the most experienced HoLEP surgeon in the UK, and have performed more than 1,200 procedures. I'm frequently invited to lecture on HoLEP in the UK and abroad and have convened 10 annual HoLEP courses at Cambridge University Hospital, where hundreds of delegates have learned how to perform HoLEP. I have demonstrated live laser prostate surgery (including the world’s first thulium laser enucleation of the prostate) on more than 25 occasions at conferences throughout the world. I also has experience with other forms of benign prostate surgery including laser vaporisation and the minimally invasive urolift procedure. This means I'm able to offer a truly bespoke approach for men with bothersome urinary symptoms or urinary retention

I am committed to surgical training and was the founding President of the UK Holmium User Group (HUG). I designed and implemented the national HUG Training Programme for HoLEP (a model which is now used internationally), and have mentored many surgeons in HoLEP. I was the Urology Training Programme Director in the East of England for 5 years until 2014 and am now on the Urology Specialist Advisory Committee which is responsible for urological training in the UK.

My other specialist interest is the surgical treatment of kidney cancer, and I am one of the highest volume kidney surgeons in the UK, offering laparoscopic and open kidney surgery. I also performs laparoscopic pyeloplasty for PUJ obstruction.
